Joyce Theater

The Joyce Theater is thrilled to bring The Joffrey Ballet to New York to perform Krzysztof Pastor’s magnificent production of Romeo & Juliet. This updated version of the classic story is an exploration of family strife to position Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers against a backdrop of complicated politics and war.  Propelled by Sergei Prokofiev's lushly dramatic 1935 score - accompanied by the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra: Members of the Chicago Philharmonic - Pastor’s classical yet contemporary ballet version of Romeo & Juliet, “might just be the most eloquent, rapturous, emotionally searing ‘translation’ of the story you will ever see.” – The Chicago Sun-Times

The Joyce gala evening will take place on Thursday, March 30.  It will offer the chance to see this revered company perform Body of Your Dreams by Myles Thatcher, Fool’s Paradise by Christopher Wheeldon, and Bells by Yuri Possokhov. Contact Scott Young at 646-278-0442 or to purchase gala tickets, which includes dinner and program on the promenade following the performance.

Tickets are available for purchase at or by calling 212-496-0600.
